He swallows hard and gives his head a hard shake. He’s hallucinating. Wouldn’t be the first time he’s come back post mission with his mind playing ticks. Getting smacked around some tends to do that to a bloke. But this is…different. He blinks and blinks again, but the more he stares the more the image sticks.
Then Arthur opens his mouth.
Or: there's a familiar face in Arthur's seat, and Eggsy's not at all ready to deal with this whole phoenix-rising-from-the-grave schtick.
Where Roxy is a good friend, Merlin feels bad for lying, Harry Hart is frustratingly good with children, and Eggsy has a very long, very emotional day.
- Part 1 of Recuperandae
Harry's made a promise, and Eggsy's damn well going to hold him to it.
Now if only the rest of the world wasn't intent on getting in the way.
Or: Five times Harry tries to wine and dine Eggsy, and one time that things actually work out as planned.
A direct continuation of Levamentum. (COMPLETED)
